Singapore’s leading sneaker boutique, Limited Edt, is clearly no stranger in the sneaker world, seeing how they’ve had numerous collaborations with well-known international sports brands over the past few years. This month, they’ve just added one more collab into their portfolio as they partner with ASICS Tiger to present the world with the Limited Edt x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “Vanda”. Apart from Singapore’s 50th year of independence, 2015 also marks the 25 anniversary of one of ASICS Tiger’s legendary silhouettes, the GEL-LYTE III, making these kicks pretty special for both brands.
The main print on the jacquard upper features a Singapore icon, the Vanda Miss Joaquim, which is essentially a hybrid of two orchids, fused with the Limited Edt logo emblem to represent the melting pot of cultures in Singapore. Splashed with hues of lilac, purple, blue and pink, the Limited Edt x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “Vanda” also features black premium leather on the toe box, heel and split tongue, and a white speckled midsole. Each set comes in a custom-made box with two sets of waxed laces (black and lilac), a tie and a water-repellant spray for shoes.
Here’s the behind-the-scenes look at the making of the shoe:
The Limited Edt x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “Vanda” is available while stocks last at Limited Edt outlets for $269. A global launch is slated for 6 November.
